Hi! I'm trying to find someone else that is in my daughters situation to talk to. She is 16 and has DDD at her L4-L5 and L5-S1. She's always in pain and nothing else has helped ( chiropractor, PT, epidural injections and lots of different meds). She has had 2 lumbar disectomies and had relief for only a short time. And now they are saying a fusion is the next step. Every physician she has seen is shocked at the MRI images for her age. I have a hard time finding any information about kids with DDD. If anyone could help or has information that would be great. Thanks so much!
